Before WatchPoint AtRisk Registry was developed, local emergency managers had no single source for the updated location and critical care information needed to assist vulnerable patients in disaster areas, including those who are: on life support, homebound, disabled, elderly and those with special needs.
WatchPoint AtRisk Registry was created to fulfill this need and battle-tested during the disasters that followed Hurricane Katrina. Not only was the technology improved and proven successful, the system remained fully accessible at all times and no patient data was compromised.
Now, medical care providers can seamlessly communicate real-time information to improve local disaster planning, evacuation, medical care and recovery of vulnerable patients.
WatchPoint AtRisk Registry provides two ways you can securely communicate the information that emergency responders need to plan for, care for and transport at-risk patients, from the start of an evacuation until their safe return home.
For inpatient care providers, WatchPoint AtRisk Registry is an event-based solution for use during a disaster or evacuation. Update the registry with your patient information when you’re facing a crisis to notify local emergency managers of your at-risk patient details, helping them to create a manifest for evacuation, rescue, recovery and critical care.
Outpatient care providers should typically update vulnerable patient information on the WatchPoint AtRisk Registry weekly. Local emergency managers are notified of updates and use patient information to create advanced planning for the evacuation, rescue and recovery of these patients.
Whether you’re an inpatient facility adding vulnerable patient information when you’re notified of an impending evacuation, or an outpatient facility updating patient information weekly, WatchPoint AtRisk Registry is a simple safety solution:
For anyone involved in emergency planning for vulnerable patients (emergency managers, first responders and CMS agency staff), this cloud-based SaaS solution offers robust reporting and administrative capabilities to make planning, managing data and coordinating efforts more efficient than ever:

"AtRisk Registry fills a critical need in our emergency operations planning and response. This application now gives everyone involved in patient evacuation and movement a real-time view into the status of patients and the process. The application’s usability is unprecedented in this field. From the ability to produce the patient lists needed by our federal partners to the ability to track patients as they move through the evacuation and back again is unmatched. No other application gives us the functionality we need. The team at AtRisk is responsive and able to react quickly and efficiently to changing requirements. They understand the fluid nature of emergency operations and have accommodated us at every step. I am more confident than ever in our ability to succeed with AtRisk as our partner."
